    If I have two .pst files that I've opened in Outlook 2003, how do I tell Outlook which pst to use when I click on Contacts on the left side?

    Thanks

    Outlook will use the PST file associated with the your default e-mail account.

    When you say associated with, would that be whichever pst file the default email is delivering its mail to?

    Thanks

    Yes, that's the one.

    In Folder view you can right click on an Outlook contacts folder, select properties, go to the "Outlook Address Book" tab and check "Show this folder as an email address book". You can have more than one Contacts folder used as an email address book.

    When I click the contacts icon, I can see all three of my contacts folders listed at the top of the left pane. The one that is selected is whichever was selected last time I visited contacts.
